First Capital, Inc. Reports Earnings for 2016

CORYDON, Ind., Jan. 26, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- First Capital, Inc. (the “Company”) (NASDAQ:FCAP), the holding company for First Harrison Bank (the “Bank”), today reported net income of $6.9 million, or $2.05 per diluted share, for the year ended December 31, 2016, compared to net income of $5.2 million, or $1.87 per diluted share, for the year ended December 31, 2015.  The increase in net income is primarily due to increases in net interest income after provision for loan losses and noninterest income partially offset by an increase in noninterest expenses.

As previously announced, on December 4, 2015, the Company completed its acquisition of Peoples Bancorp, Inc. of Bullitt County and its wholly-owned bank subsidiary Peoples Bank of Bullitt County (collectively, “Peoples”), headquartered in Shepherdsville, Kentucky.  As part of the acquisition, the Company acquired total assets with a fair value of $240 million, assumed liabilities with a fair value of $211 million and issued 580,017 shares of Company stock.  During the year ended December 31, 2015, the Company incurred one-time acquisition-related expenses of $1.0 million.  If the one-time acquisition-related expenses are excluded from earnings, the Company would have reported net income of $6.1 million, or $2.18 per diluted share, for the year ended December 31, 2015.

Net interest income after provision for loan losses increased $5.0 million for 2016 as compared to 2015. Interest income increased $6.4 million when comparing the two periods due to an increase in the average balance in interest-earning assets from $454.4 million for 2015 to $685.0 million for 2016, while the average tax-equivalent yield of interest-earning assets decreased from 4.25% for 2015 to 3.76% for 2016.  Both the increase in the average balance of interest-earning assets and the decrease in the average tax-equivalent yield for 2016 are primarily attributable to the Peoples acquisition.  Through the acquisition of Peoples, the Company acquired loans, investment securities, interest-bearing deposits with banks and federal funds sold with a fair value of approximately $56 million, $132 million, $5 million and $28 million, respectively.  The high concentration of investment securities, interest-bearing deposits with banks and federal funds sold, which generally provide a lower yield than loans, led to a decrease in the overall tax-equivalent yield on interest-earning assets for 2016.  Interest expense increased $759,000 when comparing the periods as the average cost and average balance of interest-bearing liabilities increased from 0.29% to 0.33% and from $350.6 million to $531.1 million, respectively.  These changes were also primarily attributable to the Peoples acquisition, with the Company assuming deposit liabilities with a fair value of approximately $209 million.  As a result of the changes in interest-earning assets and interest-bearing liabilities, the interest rate spread decreased from 3.96% for 2015 to 3.43% for 2016. 

The provision for loan losses was $645,000 for 2016 compared to $50,000 for 2015.  Provisions for loan losses are based on management’s analysis of the allowance for loan losses.   Net charge-offs were $674,000 for 2016 compared to $1.5 million for 2015.  The net charge-offs recognized for 2015 primarily related to a $1.2 million charge-off on a commercial loan that had been fully reserved for in prior periods. 

Noninterest income increased $1.0 million for 2016 as compared to 2015 primarily due to increases in service charges on deposit accounts, gains on the sale of loans and gains on the sale of securities of $521,000, $336,000 and $176,000, respectively.

Noninterest expenses increased $3.8 million for 2016 compared to 2015 primarily due to the increased expenses associated with operating the five offices acquired from Peoples, partially offset by the $1.0 million in costs related to the 2015 acquisition.  Compensation and benefits increased $2.6 million primarily due to normal salary increases and the retained Peoples personnel.  Other operating expense and data processing expense also increased $1.0 million and $708,000, respectively, when comparing the two periods. 

The Company’s net income was $1.7 million, or $0.52 per diluted share, for the quarter ended December 31, 2016 compared to $1.1 million, or $0.38 per diluted share, for the quarter ended December 31, 2015.   During the quarter ended December 31, 2015, the Company incurred one-time acquisition-related expenses of $646,000.  If the one-time acquisition-related expenses are excluded from earnings, the Company would have reported net income of $1.6 million, or $0.56 per diluted share, for the quarter ended December 31, 2015.

Net interest income after provision for loan losses increased $824,000 for the quarter ended December 31, 2016 as compared to the same period in 2015.  Interest income increased $1.1 million when comparing the two periods, due to an increase in the average balance of earning assets from $494.4 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2015 to $700.3 million for the same period in 2016, partially offset by a decrease in the average tax-equivalent yield on interest-earning assets from 4.25% for the period in 2015 to 3.66% for 2016.  Interest expense increased $91,000 as the average balance of interest-bearing liabilities increased from $383.3 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2015 to $541.5 million for the same period in 2016 and the average cost of interest-bearing liabilities decreased from 0.31% for the quarter ended December 31, 2015 to 0.29% for the same period in 2016.  The provision for loan losses was $220,000 for the quarter ended December 31, 2016, but no provision for loan losses was recorded for the quarter ended December 31, 2015.

Noninterest income increased $116,000 for the quarter ended December 31, 2016 as compared to the quarter ended December 31, 2015, primarily due increases of $80,000 in service charges on deposit accounts and $64,000 in gains on the sale of loans. 

Noninterest expenses increased $180,000 for the quarter ended December 31, 2016 as compared to the same period in 2015, primarily due to increases in compensation and benefits expense and data processing expense of $425,000 and $195,000, respectively, partially offset by the $646,000 in costs related to the Peoples acquisition recognized in the quarter ended December 31, 2015. 

Total assets at December 31, 2016 were $743.7 million compared to $715.8 million at December 31, 2015.  Investment securities and net loans receivable increased $69.1 million and $22.0 million, respectively, which was partially offset by a decrease in cash and cash equivalents of $63.3 million.  Investment securities increased due to management investing excess liquidity obtained in the Peoples acquisition primarily in government agency mortgage-backed securities.  Deposits also increased $27.5 million primarily due to increases in interest-bearing demand and savings deposits during 2016.  Nonperforming assets (consisting of nonaccrual loans, accruing loans 90 days or more past due, troubled debt restructurings on accrual status, and foreclosed real estate) decreased from $11.2 million at December 31, 2015 to $8.4 million at December 31, 2016 as management continues to work to resolve nonperforming assets acquired from Peoples.

At December 31, 2016, the Bank was considered well-capitalized under applicable federal regulatory capital guidelines.

The Bank currently has seventeen offices in the Indiana communities of Corydon, Edwardsville, Greenville, Floyds Knobs, Palmyra, New Albany, New Salisbury, Jeffersonville, Salem and Lanesville and the Kentucky communities of Shepherdsville, Mt. Washington and Lebanon Junction.  In March 2016, the Company also acquired property for a proposed branch location near the River Ridge development in Jeffersonville, Indiana.  The Company broke ground on the new office during the quarter ended December 31, 2016 and expects the new office to be open in the Spring of 2017.
